According to an exclusive from The Daily Beast, Republican Senator Jeff Flake has met with CNN and MSNBC to become a news pundit after his term is up in 2019.
On Monday, he met with MSNBC president Phil Griffin; and on Tuesday, he met with rival network CNN’s chief Jeff Zucker. Flake was absent Monday for a series of Senate votes that took place around 5:30 p.m. Neither network responded to requests for comment on those meetings.
When asked by The Daily Beast whether he is in talks for a cable-news gig, Flake declined to confirm or deny that the meetings took place.
It is unclear if he will interview with any other Networks but it is quite odd that a Republican’s first networks would be two networks with such heavy liberal bias.
